How can I root my i9000 on 2.3.3?
Bought in Thailand last year and updated via Kies only with the official updates.
I have been searching and reading for over a day (admin check my IP in the webserver logs if you like) to find out how I can root my Samsung Galaxy S i9000 International,
ideally keeeping my settings, launcher, homescreens, SMS, apps ... without having to restore backups ..
I am happy with keeping close to stock.
I backed up apps, sms, callhistory, kies backups just to be safe
Both 3-button combos are working
I came across SuperOneClick but it didn't work, it's not supposed to work on 2.3.3 Gingerbread
Then in severeal threads where ppl specifically asked about DXJV9, the FuguRoot Mod was suggested.
A question remains:
- there is no stock kernel listed for DXJV9 but the instructions say you have to flash with it afterwards, where would I find it
There are some kernel files listed in this guide but none of them for DXJV9.
Also I would be unsure if I need to extract the zImage-root.tar before specifying it in odin, inside is a file called zImage without file extention. Another guide said the .tar needs to be extracted first.
Are there any other ways to achieve this, all I want is root. Any tips appreciated!
